I thought some folks might appreciate this: it’s very brief look at what goes into creating a scar.  After finalizing the design (image 1) and applying a stencil, I lightly “outline” the entire piece.  After completing the outline, a topical product is applied (image 2) that drastically minimizes discomfort and bleeding.  Then I begin to sculpt the piece by cutting deeper, varying depth to create different line weights (image 3), and then tissue is removed where needed, leaving us with our breathtaking final product (image 4).  This piece is Chad’s, but I’d love to work with you to design your perfect piece!

would it be possible to do scarification over self harm scars? or would it interfere?

You can absolutely place scarification over existing scars. The existing scars are still in place but the new scar easily becomes the new focal point.

Brianna came in yesterday and got fancy.  About an hour on her forearm.

Hey ryanpba- you trying to be my beard buddy?

Damn dude, that scarification work is beautiful!

Thanks so much!

I think we may have talked once or twice before... Have you ever been a guest piercer at No Ka Oi or Infinite in Philly?

I have! NoKaOi is one of my favorite shops in the country! What did we talk about?

you probably get this often, but how big are you ears? They look REALLY good :)

Thanks so much! They’re 2 1/2 inches.

Another great shot of Chad’s awesome cutting I did today.  He say like a rock for 3 straight hours, and I think we’re both excited to see this piece heal.

Three hours on Chad’s ribs and belly.

Fresh paired 12g daith piercings for Matt.  These were done with a bunch of piercers watching and were a ton of fun!  No marks, just straight to the fun part.
